I'm all for automation but in this case it seems it saves very little
time and effort. Compared to the process of fixing the bug, testing
the solution, releasing a new package a couple of clicks is nothing.

The only real benefit I see is that we don't forget to close bugs but
we already get weekly reminders so...
